Our body goes through many changes as we age, one of the first and most noticeable are changes to our skin. While it’s not possible to stop the aging process, aesthetic medicine has developed strategic anti-aging treatments that can help slow the process and allow us to feel and look like the best versions of ourselves for longer.
Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery is a premier provider of anti-aging treatments in NYC. No matter what your aesthetic goals are, there is a treatment that can help you meet them. Our aesthetic experts are highly trained and work with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan based on their individual goals.
Many of our anti-aging treatments are 100% customizable for each patient. Restorative aesthetic medicine isn’t really about changing the way you look, but restoring your appearance by partnering with your body’s natural processes. It’s about helping you look more like you.
Why does our skin age?
Understanding how anti-aging treatments work requires understanding how the skin ages. Our skin gets its shape and structure from two proteins: collagen and elastin. As we age, our body slows down its production of these proteins and eventually stops producing them altogether. This leads to loss of volume, sagging, wrinkles, slowed healing—which all contribute to our skin looking worn and developing wrinkles.
Anti-aging treatments focus on boosting our body’s production of collagen and elastin, usually through a type of controlled injury. Your body’s natural healing process inherently creates more collagen and elastin, which leads to firmer, smoother skin.
Anti-aging treatments in NYC
There are many options for anti-aging treatments that are designed to target specific parts of the aging process. Most of these treatments can be used to treat multiple conditions, or used in combination with each other to provide even more enhanced results.
Anti-aging treatments for wrinkles
Wrinkles are typically the first thing people picture when they think about getting older. Most of our aesthetic treatments will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but some are more effective than others.
Botox is a household name for a reason, it’s one of the most effective ways to reduce wrinkles on the market and has been for decades. Our highly trained aesthetic providers can strategically inject Botox to reduce wrinkles. We also offer similar products such as Dysport, Xeomin,, Juveau and Daxxify.
As a neurotoxin, Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles that lead to wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. Because it’s injected into the muscle, Botox treats current wrinkles and slows the formation of new wrinkles. Fillers like Juvederm and Botox work well together to provide more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Of course we use many other fillers as well.
We also offer other neurotoxins like Juveau, Dysport, and Xeomin. These treatments are great because they are quick and don’t require any downtime after.
Through ultrasound waves, Ultherapy targets the skin’s deeper layers to stimulate collagen growth. This treatment tightens skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without the need for downtime or extensive recovery.
Ultherapy is the first FDA treatment approved to reduce wrinkles and lines on the face. It actually treats the same layer of tissue as a surgical facelift, the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system), which means it can provide similar results to a facelift or brow lift with significantly less downtime and recovery.
Anti-aging treatments for volume loss
Part of your sagging skin is caused by a loss of volume in your skin cells and also as our balance of fat changes in different areas.
As far as volume loss treatments go, facial fillers are a go-to treatment for a lot of patients, with good reason! Fillers provide immediate, long-lasting results with a treatment that only takes about 30 minutes and doesn’t require any downtime!
Our facial filler specialists can safely inject fillers in the lips, under the eyes, and in the cheeks to replace volume lost. We offer multiple brands and types of fillers, including Voluma, Restylane, RHA, Radiesse and Sculptra, so our experts can provide a customized filler plan to address your unique results.
For sagging skin, volume loss, or scarring that is caused by decreased collagen, microneedling and RF microneedling treatments can restore the skin’s natural structure.
Through controlled injury using micro-sized needles, microneedling stimulates your body’s healing response, which stimulates collagen production. When we use radio frequency (RF) energy as part of the microneedling process, it further stimulates the layers of your skin to tighten and tone.
Microneedling can be used in conjunction with fillers to further correct volume loss. Adding RF to microneedling can also enhance results and shorten healing time so you can get back to work faster.
Anti-aging treatments for skin texture and age spots
When we get older, the cell turnover in our skin slows down and can lead to a buildup of dead skin cells and rough skin texture.
As an IPL photofacial, BBL HERO is a state-of-the-art broadband light system that uses the power of light to improve pigment, redness, and overall skin quality with no downtime. The intense pulsed light gently heats your skin to encourage your body’s natural healing process.
The BBL device uses 9 different filters designed to treat dozens of different skin conditions and spot size adapters to change the size of the treatment area to adjust for different curves and parts of the face. These unique aspects make the treatment completely customizable to your individual skin concerns.
Laser skin resurfacing is one the most aggressive treatments you can do for full face skin rejuvenation. It is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments in NYC. At Pearlman Aesthetic Surgery we use a fractionated CO2 laser. We can fully adjust the wavelength, depth of penetration, and spacing of the penetration points to account for your skin type and desired results. The fractionated laser spares normal skin in between laser spots for faster healing.
Laser skin rejuvenation can require up to a week of recovery after your treatment or even more if you want an aggressive treatment (and even better results). The laser removes the top most layer of your skin, which encourages new cell growth while removing damaged skin. The stronger your treatment, the longer your recovery. We like to say, the worse you look after laser resurfacing and the longer you look bad, the better the result.
How do I decide between anti-aging treatments in NYC?
Scheduling a consultation with an expert provider is the best way to determine which anti-aging treatments will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Most of the treatments discussed here address multiple issues on their own or in combination with other treatments to provide optimal results.
During your consultation, our aesthetic experts can examine your skin and the signs of aging you want to address. Using this information, we are able to develop a personalized treatment plan for you and answer any questions you have about the recommended treatments. We offer a wide range of non-surgical and surgical solutions for aging skin.
Support your anti-aging treatments at home with regular skin care
While aesthetic anti-aging treatment can provide wonderful results, we alway say that prevention is the first step in beautiful skin long-term. 3 key ways to prevent early signs of aging are to use proper sun protection, refrain from smoking, and invest in a medical-grade skin care regimen.
You can help prevent acne, age spots, dullness, and other skin concerns with a daily skincare regimen that uses high-quality, medical-grade products. Medical-grade skin care is superior to over-the-counter products because it contains more potent ingredients that produce science-backed results. Our skin professionals can answer your product questions and help you find the right products for your skin type and concerns.
